This book features selected papers presented at the 20th International Conference on Near Infrared Spectroscopy. It discusses the latest progress in the field of near infrared spectroscopy from around the globe, including the advances in instrumentation, spectral interpretation and Chemometrics. In addition, it presents potential trends for near infrared spectroscopy in the next decade and highlights developments in process analytical technology, chemical imaging and deep learning. It can be used as a reference book for researchers and application personnel engaged in spectroscopy technology, Chemometrics, analytical instruments, on-site rapid or on-line analysis, process control and other fields. It will also be useful for undergraduates and postgraduates studying these topics.
Dr. Xiaoli Chu received his B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Yantai University in 1996 and his M.S. degree and Ph.D. degree in applied chemistry from the Research Institute of Petroleum Processing (RIPP) in 1999 and 2004, respectively. He is currently the director of a research group on spectroscopy and Chemometrics in Analytical Research Department at the RIPP. His research interests include the research and applications of molecular spectroscopy (UV-visible, infrared, near infrared and Raman) combined with Chemometrics methods for petroleum and petrochemicals. He has applied for more than 40 invention patents; over 30 patents have realized industrialization, and has authored several books.He acted as the guest editor of the special issue of Journal of Near Infrared Spectroscopy. He has been very active in the China Spectroscopy Analysis Community, and organized the first Chinese National Near Infrared Spectroscopy Conference in 2006, co-organized the 2nd Asian Spectroscopy Symposium in 2009 and the 6th Asian Spectroscopy Symposium in 2018.
Dr. Longhai Guo obtained his Ph.D. Degree in KwanseiGakuin University in 2011 and focused on crystallization of polymer materials using spectroscopy and chemometrics.
